all headaches are not due to brain tumor
User :   a bad habit of mine is for each and everything i used to type and see in internet
User :   googling
Doctor :  
there are various reasons for headaches
Doctor :  
this will lead you to all kinds of information, some of which may not be relevent to your case
Doctor :  
best is to discuss your symptoms with doctor
Doctor :  
instead of googling your symptoms and getting more worried with the answers
Doctor :  
the doctor wil be able to assess based on other history and other factors combined with examination to help you better
Doctor :  
i recommend you to go back to the previous doctor and ask him to prescribe you again the Happy XT tablets, and do not stop taking them unless advised my the doctor

folow these steps
Doctor :  
1) take Tab Dolo 650 mg two times a day for headaches, or whenever you feel headache is going to start
